This online tool is an essential resource for all those working in the field of learning disabilities, due to the high prevalence of the condition (most common inherited cause of learning disabilities, affecting 1 in 4000 males and 1 in 6000 females).


The objectives of the course are to give people the ability to recognise the characteristics of the condition and to help identify ways to support people with Fragile X. The course includes real-life examples and involves interactive slides.


The development of the course was made possible through partnership Cornerstone and a grant from the Scottish Government Autism Development Fund. Thank you to Sandra Thoms for her input and expertise in developing this course.
